Reviews of Mambo for Men

The first I tried Mambo for Men...I was expecting something completely different.I was envisioning spicy,woody,possibly some leather and really musky...nope.However, I like Sung Homme and Mambo for Men was certainly inspired by that same clean factor only a tad more colorful.It has that Sung wet/really slick lavender added with a shaving cream note mixed with just a little patchouli in it.An additional note I get is a smooth mildly spice sweetness with a green tone to it which must be the cinnamon leaf.

Clean,fresh,masculinity suave,and green.Mambo for Men was definitely crafted with appreciation to the 1970's era and could easily be aligned with a Halston fragrance of that timeframe.It's only weakness I see is it's projection is decent for the first few hours then becomes very light like an aftershave.Mambo smells pretty good at it's $15 price though and even at it's short projection (to me) has gotten compliments.

Very synthetic. Extremely spicy and harsh. IMO this is not worth the money even at its current price. Avoid.

After dry down it smells something like artificial coconut. Not a masculine fragrance IMO.

Smells like Mont Blanc's Individuel.

Huge complement getter. I wear many colognes and this is the only one that draws curiosity from both men and women. They love it. I am very comfortable with this scent and it has become a signature of mine over the years. One or two sprays max for the office or gym as it can get strong. It's fruity yet woody, spicy and musky.

The opening is quite nice, a bergamot-lemon-Verbena mix that very soon has a woody-floral note added to it. A bit of patchouli and a very light musk is added too. That sounds complicated and as such could be very nice, but there is surprisingly little development in it and it is very artificial. Initially silage and projection are good, but after the first hour it is close to my skin. Decent overall longevity of about three hours. Overall a neutral score, but if one would take into consideration its
keen pricing, a thumbs up would be justified.
